Editorial Reviews

Legendary on the live music circuit, Chicago-based Umphrey’s McGee has perfected the art of progressive improvisation. With swirling guitar textures, multi-faceted arrangements and their signature blend of power and finesse, the sextet brings jamming to a new level. This special live performance, recorded in High-Definition and mixed in 5.1 Surround Sound for the PBS concert series Soundstage, showcases the band’s spontaneity and dazzling musicianship. The incredible 13-song set (including six favorites not shown during the original PBS broadcast) is also supplemented by two bonus tracks – “Made To Measure” and “Wizard Burial Ground” – recorded at the Auditorium Theatre in Chicago.

Featuring: Ocean Billy, Higgins, Got Your Milk (Right Here), Out Of Order, Great American, The Bottom Half, Walletsworth, Believe The Lie, Eat, Words, Morning Song, Alex’s House, Glory

Plus the Live Bonus Tracks: Made To Measure, Wizard Burial Ground

5.0 out of 5 stars Umphrey's is AMAZING November 10, 2009
Verified Purchase
I love Umphrey's McGee! I've seen many of their concerts and listen to their music daily. This dvd provided a very unique experience. It showed the band in a much more personal atmosphere without the distraction of an awesome light show. The playing was very tight, similar to studio recordings with a little improvisation. Great addition to my UMPH collection.

3.0 out of 5 stars It is what it is: a PBS portrait of Umpreys March 25, 2014
On any given night of the week, a live Umphrey's McGee show is a mystical jam rock experience. Performed with musical wizardy, the rockin' songs are filled with extraordinary sonic textures. The nuanced soundscape is always accompanied by an amazing light show that is the perfect visual accompaniment. As a sanitized depiction of Umphreys MGee, Soundstage doesn't really capture any of these things, but "Live" is still an enjoyable experience. In contrast to a typical Umphreys show, the PBS crowd is unnaturally restrained and the band is seen under medically approved white lights for the entire show. Things start off a on high note with 'Ocean Billy,' one of the band's epic tunes. Next up is another sparkler, the reggae infused 'Higgins.' While 'Got Your Milk (Right Here)' is a lame tune, it is followed by the more ambitious, 'Out Of Order.' 'Great American' is a genteel instrumental song that gives the band a serious chance to stretch-out. As the title track of their 2007 release, 'Bottom Half' is more mediocrity. 'Walletsworth' is a return to glory. This is a song that captures Umphrey's Mcgee's signature sound. For this tune, the band employs their time-tested musical formula. 'Believe the Lie ' is an equally strong classic. Not to be outdone, 'Eat' is quintessential Umphrey's McGee style instrumental jam rock, so it is cerebral yet smokin'. While playing tasty powerchords that allude to classic metal, it also has an intellect that is rooted in jamband cleverness. 'Words' delivers philosophically deep lyrics but uninspiring music. While 'Morning Song' is rewarding, 'Alex's House' is okay. As the name suggests, the show ends on a high note with 'Glory.' As would be expected in a PBS product, there's no delightfully kitschy second set cover song. Read more ›
